  • Chris Carson Set To Be "A Full Go"

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) has been labeled a "full go" by head coach Pete Carroll for Monday's contest against Philadelphia. Carson has missed each of the team's prior four games due to a foot injury, as his absence coincided with numerous backfield injuries. Now, he'll return to true RB1 duties for Seattle, thereby putting himself back in low-end RB1 consideration in the vast majority of season-long formats. While Carlos Hyde has collected double-digit carries and rushing touchdowns in each of his last two games, Carson's return likely knocks him out of roster consideration except in the deepest of season-long leagues. Additionally, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas can return to the waiver wire, barring an aggravation of injury to Carson's foot.

  • Jamal Adams Has Been Playing Through Injury

    Seattle Seahawks All-Pro safety Jamal Adams (shoulder) said he has been "playing with one arm" for the last two weeks because of a shoulder injury that he suffered on the first play of the loss to the Rams in Week 10. Adams finished that game and then played every defensive snap four days later when Seattle beat the Cardinals last Thursday night. He recorded seven tackles and two sacks in the game, including a forced fumble on one of the sacks. Adams has missed four games with a groin injury in his first year in Seattle, but he still leads the team with 5.5 sacks and remains an elite IDP option at the defensive back position. He'll be a must-start in Week 12 against the Eagles and turnover-prone quarterback Carson Wentz on Monday night.

  • Chris Carson Logs Full Practice Session Tuesday

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) was able to record a full practice session Tuesday, a significant step in the right direction as it pertains to his availability for Monday's contest against Philadelphia. Carson has been on the precipice of returning over the past four weeks, but by getting in a full practice six days ahead of his next game, fantasy managers can likely rely upon Seattle getting their top running back option back on the field in a full capacity. Even when healthy this year, Carson has received double-digit carries in just three of his six contests, ceding touches to Carlos Hyde. With DeeJay Dallas having also shown flashes of potential in Carson's absence, the Seahawks' backfield could be much more crowded than usual by the time they face the Eagles in Week 12.

  • Greg Olsen Lands On Injured Reserve

    The Seattle Seahawks placed tight end Greg Olsen (foot) on Injured Reserve on Monday. The 35-year-old veteran suffered a ruptured plantar fascia in his foot in the Thursday night win over the Cardinals, most likely ending his season and possibly his career. Olsen has been in the league for 14 years and considered retirement previously after dealing with foot injuries while at the end of his tenure with the Panthers. He wasn't very fantasy relevant in 10 games this year with Seattle, catching 23 of his 35 targets for 224 yards and one touchdown. With Olsen out for most likely the rest of the year, Will Dissly and Jacob Hollister should split pass-catching duties at tight end, making it hard to predict which player will be more productive on a weekly basis.

  • Jason Myers Nearly Perfect In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers continued to be one of the NFL's best kickers with his performance in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. He made both of his field-goal attempts on the night and went 2-for-3 on his extra points. That brought his season marks to 12-for-12 on field goals and 36-for-38 on extra points. If it weren't for his team's efficiency in the red zone, we would see Myers even higher in the season-long points standings for kickers. His team has an outstanding schedule over the next four weeks, too, so Myers should continue to be one of the most consistent options at the position for fantasy managers.

  • Seahawks Defense Comes Up With Game-Winning Stop

    The Seattle Seahawks Defense has been far from the best unit this year, but for the second game this season, they were able to seal the team's win in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night. The team allowed 21 points on the evening, but they got after quarterback Kyler Murray. They got to him for nine quarterback hits and three sacks, including one by recent addition Carlos Dunlap on fourth down on the Cardinals final drive. This defense still leaves a lot to be desired and they're too inconsistent to rely on as a fantasy unit. However, they showed up this week when it mattered, and Seattle will be happy with a good but not great performance.

  • Greg Olsen Leaves Early, Team Fears Season-Ending Injury

    Seattle Seahawks tight end Greg Olsen (foot) was hoping for a good performance in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, but his night was ultimately cut short due to an injury. The Seahawks fear that Olsen ruptured the fascia in his left foot. He caught both of his targets for 20 yards on the evening, but that wasn't enough to save his early exit. Olsen has been largely underwhelming since joining the Seahawks this season, and the team fears that his year might be done with this injury. If that's the case, one of Will Dissly or Jacob Hollister would see a big uptick in value as the new starting tight end in this offense.

  • D.K. Metcalf Finishes With A Good Game In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf bounced back from a bad performance in Week 10 with a solid Week 11 outing against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, but he was two plays away from looking even better. He caught three of his five targets for 46 yards and a touchdown. He dropped one pass in the back of the end zone that would have been good for his second touchdown of the night. A little later in the game, he dropped a pass that would've likely given him a big gain. If he comes down with those two balls, he's finishing with an outing of at least 20 PPR points. Metcalf is a top-10 fantasy wide receiver, and with four stellar matchups ahead, he should be locked into your lineups over the next month.

  • Tyler Lockett Comes Back To Life In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett had been going through a bit of a cold stretch over the last few weeks, but he finally returned to relevance in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. He caught all nine of his targets for 67 yards and a touchdown. He and teammate D.K. Metcalf continue to alternate their big games, although Metcalf could have had one this week with better hands on two occasions. But it was good to see Lockett show some life again. The Seahawks have four really juicy matchups coming up, so Lockett has the ability to really boost your team to the playoffs. He'll continue to be a strong WR2 with WR1 upside on a weekly basis.

  • Carlos Hyde Runs Well In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks running back Carlos Hyde missed the last few games for the team, but he knocked off that rust en route to a strong day in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night. He finished the game with 14 carries for 79 yards and a touchdown. He also caught two of his three targets for 16 yards. It was clear by the workload split that he is the team's primary runner when teammate Chris Carson is out. He saw 16 touches compared to just nine for the other two active running backs. Carson has a chance to return next week as the primary starter, which would make Hyde just a chance-of-pace back. But if Carson were to miss anymore time, Hyde would remain an RB2 option.

  • Russell Wilson Efficient In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have the best day of his season in Week 11 on Thursday night, but he was extremely efficient in the team's win over the Arizona Cardinals. He completed 23 of 28 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 10 carries for 42 yards. His night was very close to looking even better. Two of his five incompletions were drops by wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, one of which would have been for a touchdown, and he had a throwaway on the team's final drive. This offense is still playing well, but Wilson has slipped from a fantasy perspective after the last few weeks. With a juicy slate ahead, he'll still be in the QB1 conversation and he could pop again at just the right time with the fantasy playoffs inching closer.

  • Tyler Lockett Gets Green Light To Suit Up Thursday

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (knee) may not have been able to practice heading into Thursday's contest versus Arizona, but he has been given the thumbs up to take the field. Lockett had the defining performance of his career versus the Cardinals earlier this season when he hauled in 15 receptions for 200 yards and three touchdowns back in Week 7. Since then, he has been held below 50 receiving yards twice and is yet to find the end zone. Despite his recent rough patch and injury concerns, Lockett is a must-start in all season-long formats. After this week, he'll have ample time to recover ahead of his next meetings against the Eagles and Giants, both of which should be abundantly favorable matchups.

  • Chris Carson, Travis Homer Ruled Out For Thursday's Contest

    Seattle Seahawks running backs Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (knee, thumb) have both officially been ruled inactive for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, paving the way for the duo of Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas to handle the backfield load. Carson's absence will now stretch into a fourth week, as he will have ample time to recover ahead of a Week 12 matchup versus Philadelphia next Sunday. Homer, who had seen an increased role with Carson and Hyde absent in recent weeks, will miss his first game of the year and can safely be returned to the waiver wire in all season-long formats. Hyde should lead the Seattle rushing attack, but how effective he'll be in his first game action since Week 7 remains to be seen. Alex Collins and Bo Scarbrough could also be mixed in. He rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown against Arizona earlier this year, making him a safe floor selection in both single-game DFS and season-long formats as a flex.

  • Quinton Dunbar Goes On Injured Reserve

    The Seattle Seahawks placed cornerback Quinton Dunbar (knee) on Injured Reserve on Thursday and activated defensive tackle Damon Harrison and running back Bo Scarbrough from the practice squad in corresponding moves. It's unclear if Dunbar will be able to make it back this season. He has 30 tackles (28 solo), one interception and five passes defensed in six games in 2020. Shaquill Griffin will also be out on Thursday night against the Cardinals, making Seattle's secondary ripe for the picking for quarterback Kyler Murray and a high-flying Cardinals passing attack. Seattle will hope that Snacks Harrison can help them out in a rotation role and get some pressure on Murray to slow him down. Scarbrough will serve as depth behind Carlos Hyde, rookie DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins.

  • Seahawks Defense Plans To Pressure Arizona QB More

    The last time the Seattle Seahawks faced the Arizona Cardinals and quarterback Kyler Murray in Week 7, the second-year QB was 34-for-48 for 360 yards and three touchdowns. Head coach Pete Carroll said the team erred by not calling for more blitzes against Murray in that matchup. Seattle didn't sack Murray once in that game and didn't even hit him once in his 48 dropbacks. Murray also ran 14 times for 67 yards in that contest. The Seahawks didn't have All-Pro safety Jamal Adams in Week 7, but he also played through a shoulder injury last week. Adams is the team's best blitzer, so Seattle will surely look to put more pressure on Murray on Thursday night. Still, the NFL's last-ranked defense will be without Pro Bowl cornerback Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) and should be avoided as a fantasy unit.

  • Travis Homer Doubtful To Face Cardinals

    Seattle Seahawks running back Travis Homer (knee, thumb) is doubtful to play on Thursday night against the division-rival Cardinals. Homer injured his thumb in the Week 10 loss to the Rams, which paved the way for Alex Collins to see more work alongside rookie DeeJay Dallas in Seattle's backfield. He had three catches for 19 yards in the game before leaving with the injury. Against Arizona on Thursday night, the Seahawks will be using some combination of Carlos Hyde, Dallas and Collins with Chris Carson (foot) expected to miss his fourth straight game. Hyde figures to see most of the work, but he's coming off a three-game absence himself and will be a risky RB3/flex if Seattle chooses to ease him back into the fold.

  • Seahawks Defense To Be Thin In Secondary

    Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Shaquill Griffin (hamstring), Quinton Dunbar (knee) and Neiko Thorpe (core) have all been ruled out for Week 11 against the Cardinals on Thursday night. That's really bad news for a Seahawks Defense that has allowed 364.7 passing yards per game (most in the NFL) through 10 weeks of the season. Seattle has also given up 266 points (sixth-most). They allowed the Cardinals to score 37 points against them in the overtime loss in Week 7 in their first meeting, so fantasy managers should be looking elsewhere for a fantasy defense this week. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray and the Arizona passing attack could very well have another field day.

  • Jason Myers Is A Good Play In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks kicker Jason Myers has remained one of the most consistent kickers this season, and that should continue in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. Myers averages around eight points per game and he remains extremely accurate. If his offense was just slightly less efficient in the red zone, he would be even higher on the overall kicker scores for the year. The rematch against the Cardinals has a very good chance to be another shootout, so you can put him into your lineups for some safe production if you've been relying on a kicker that is on a bye this week.

  • D.K. Metcalf Has A Tough Matchup In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is the WR5 heading into the team's Week 11 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, but it might be difficult for him to maintain his hold on that spot this week. In the previous matchup between these two squads, he saw five targets and caught just two of them for 23 yards. Cornerback Patrick Peterson has the size and speed to match up with Metcalf and have a good amount of success, and that's rare in the NFL. Due to the high-powered offense that he plays in, though, Metcalf is still a low-end WR1/high-end WR2, but the expectations should be tempered this week.

  • Tyler Lockett Is A WR2 For Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (knee) missed practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, but he is still expected to play in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. The Seahawks will likely be hoping that he can replicate his performance from a few weeks ago when he caught 15 passes for 200 yards and three touchdowns on the night against these same Cardinals. Lockett has a great matchup because he lines up opposite cornerback Patrick Peterson. Peterson locked up teammate D.K. Metcalf all evening in Week 7, and it's just extremely difficult for anyone to match up up with Lockett because of his connection with quarterback Russell Wilson. He's slipped the last few weeks in terms of production, but he plenty of potential to bounce back in this matchup.

  • Carlos Hyde Is A Flex Play In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks running back Carlos Hyde(hamstring) appears poised to return in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday after missing the last three games, and when he returns, he'll be firmly in the flex conversation in deeper leagues. The Seahawks have other running backs in Alex Collins and rookieDeeJay Dallas that may get a few looks with Chris Carson (foot) likely to miss his fourth straight game, but Hyde could be the primary back. In an offense that is efficient running the football and also involves running backs in the receiving game, that gives him a clear path for fantasy value. However, Hyde is still more of a shaky flex play at risk of being eased back into the action on a short week.

  • Russell Wilson Can Bounce Back In Week 11

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson struggled mightily in Week 10, but he has a strong chance to bounce back in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. In the previous matchup between these two teams, he threw for three touchdowns and nearly 400 passing yards. The Seahawks are in the midst of a slight skid, as they've lost three of their last four games. This is the type of game where Wilson will need to carry his team over the top to end their skid. In terms of fantasy, he has the potential for another huge day. He's firmly in the QB1 conversation against this Cardinals Defense.

  • Chris Carson Unlikely To Play Thursday

    Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (foot) is listed as questionable for Thursday night against the Cardinals, but he is unlikely to play, according to a source. Carson got in some practice time this week, but it looks like the Seahawks will play it safe on a short week. The 26-year-old has been out since Week 7. Carlos Hyde (hamstring) got in a full practice on Tuesday and was removed from the final injury report, so he should return to a role in this backfield alongside rookie DeeJay Dallas and Alex Collins. Hyde has also been out since Week 7 when he had a season-high 15 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown. It'll be a backfield to avoid, especially since the Cardinals Defense has allowed just four rushing TDs all season.

  • Tyler Lockett Will Play Thursday Night

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night against the Cardinals, but head coach Pete Carroll said that Lockett will play. Fantasy managers need to keep Lockett in their starting lineups. He has failed to live up to expectations in five of his last six games, with the one good performance coming in the first matchup with Arizona. Lockett caught a ridiculous 15 passes for 200 yards and three touchdowns against the Cardinals in their previous meeting in Week 7. While you can't expect numbers even remotely close to that stat line, the 28-year-old should still be at least a solid WR2 while playing through a minor knee sprain in a game that could once again be a shootout.

  • Russell Wilson Expecting Pressure From Cardinals

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson expects the Cardinals Defense to bring plenty of pressure in their rematch on Thursday night in Week 11. The Cardinals brought the pressure in the second half of their win over Seattle in the first meeting, sacking him twice in overtime and totaling nine QB hits on Wilson. The Cardinals defense has blitzed 163 times in 2020, which ranks second in the NFL. They enter the week tied for sixth in the NFC in QB pressures (86) and QB knockdowns (28), per Pro Football Reference. Wilson had his worst game of the season in Week 10 against the Rams and hasn't been the MVP candidate he was early in the season the last several weeks. He'll have his hands full with this defense the second time around, but he should be more productive if he gets running back Chris Carson (foot) back. Wilson is still a top-five QB play.

  • Tyler Lockett Dealing With Knee Sprain

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett (knee) is dealing with what head coach Pete Carroll described as a "bit of a knee sprain," heading into Thursday's contest against the Cardinals. Lockett was listed as a non-participant on the team's estimated practice schedule Monday, meaning that he'll need to show some progress if he's going to ultimately be cleared to play with just three days of rest. Lockett delivered career bests in production the last time that he matched up against the Cardinals Defense back in Week 7, hauling in 15 receptions (on 20 targets) for 200 yards and three touchdowns. He has not found the end zone since, but would be a definite must-start in all season-long formats should he get clearance to take the field Thursday.

  • Seattle Expects Carlos Hyde To Return For Thursday's Game

    Seattle Seahawks running back Carlos Hyde (hamstring) is trending toward returning for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, per head coach Pete Carroll. Seattle's backfield situation has been muddled over the past three weeks with Hyde and Chris Carson (foot) having been out of the mix, but as Carson also continues to work his way back, it appears that Hyde is the closer of the two to suiting up. Should Hyde ultimately be given the green light, he'd likely see the largest share of carries, severely denting the fantasy intrigue of DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. The Cardinals Defense has allowed just four rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs this season, making Hyde -- or other Seattle rushers -- somewhat of a risky season-long asset. Check back over the coming days for updates on the Seahawks' running backs as they become available.
